What a wonderful gift you gave your loved ones this Valentine's day. And re-purposed gifts are the best--I just gave some knitting projects that didn't make their original deadlines as Valentine's gifts!

Those quilts are going to be lovely! And the rabbit--too cute! But time is, indeed, a better git. : ) Good reminder!

Andrea

The gift of time is a wonderful and priceless gift for your family.

I had plans to make my kiddos little Valentine's bears but they are still in pieces so I am thinking maybe Easter? The bunny will be so cute for your little girl. I made them for my kids last year and they turned out adorable! Happy Valentine's Day to you!

Gale

So precious.

Wise and wonderful ~ a great reminder of what's important in life :) Love the cute bunny you are making. Don't laugh but Steve wants a toy. I've settled on a bear (with his assistance).

Rose

You are so wise!! You made the exact right choice. Glad you all enjoyed it!!

Karen

Beautiful hearts. Time is a precious gift, one that always seems to please when I take the time ;) to give it!

jane

Perfect advice. Sounds like you had a wonderful day!

Beth

I think you had the best day. Now you can enjoy all you projects. I love the button heart.

Jodi

The best of plans, huh? It sounds like it all turned out a-okay anyway. And you've got yourself a reprieve -- no point establishing deadlines, they only disappoint you when they're not met. Those roses are gorgeous!

What a great mama you are...I'm sure they love time spent with you way better than any gift (as wonderful as it might be) I'll bet that pixy stix sugar was fun to clean up! Keep smiling mom. Those quilts are going to be amazing. I'm in awe of the squares you've already done. Is that a little cotton rabbits pattern? You'll have to let me know how it turns out, I've always wanted to try one of those. So cute. Have a great week friend. Enjoy the sunshine!

Kids do thrive on our presence - physical and mental. I think you gave them the perfect gift. That said, I'm curious now to see how the quilts turn out with their names. I reeeeally like that idea.

erin

the gift of time is the best one! and those quilts will come together lickety-split once you get going. i'm getting ready to make another one soon!

Rosemary

Wonderful post. Our time is what they want and need.
I will be trying out your granola recipe, sounds yummy!
